Intrusive Volcanic Features


  • Sills are thin horizontal sheets of hardened magma between layers.

  • Laccoliths are blister-like intrusions, usually near the surface, that form when magma pushes overlying layers upward.

  • Dikes are thin vertical sheets of hardened magma intruded into fractures in the crust.

  • Batholiths are usually granitic and cover hundreds or thousands of square kilometers.


Which intrusion is the sill and which is the dike?


Sill


  • The neck of a volcano is the solidified material that fills the vent or pipe of a dead volcano.


Devils Tower is a volcanic neck that is 865' tall.

It is located in northeastern Wyoming. It was the first National Monument proclaimed in the United States.
